This is the best school with best teachers. Great location in center city Philly. All teachers from Infant class to Pre-school class and administration staffs remember my kids' name. They are so friendly to EACH kid, which means no preference, no discriminations as I've observed so far. I sent my toddler to Bright Horizon center city when he was 16 months, he did cry for few weeks when I dropped him off, but now he doesn't even bother to say bye to me when I'm leaving. He likes his teachers in Toddler class. It's a very new center, so facilities are new. Most toys are made up of safe wooden material, which are also the first choice when I buy toys for my son. Anyway, my second baby is on the way, I have just got the registration form today and my second one will go to the same center as his big brother!

I was not happy with this daycare! They tell me my son can't have his bottle for his nap and if he doesn't like what they have for lunch or snack he won't eat and he'll just have to get used to it and eventually eat. He's a picky eater and I was told I have to be firm with him. Plus one day last week I go in there and the door wasn't reven shut~! Anyone could have walked in there. It's not all that clean either, the kiychen area was disgusting and there was a puddle of water on the floor When I brought to the directors attention she kind of blew me off. My son is on the waiting list for Four Seasons. I can't wait to take him back there!!
Great thing is that it's cheap. They didn't wipe my daughter too well when changing her; some feces were on her front area. She's 7 months. The toddlers often have crusty noses and the toddlers and infants are not separated. I think the provider is rough when wiping my baby's nose and don't provide enough tummy time. When I approach the provider about the issues, she denies them and acts like I hurt her feelings, but did correct the diaper changing issue. Not much enrichment, learning activities for the toddlers. The provider does act very loving towards my baby though and holds her a lot.
Summit Children's Program reflects the Mt. Airy community that it has been part of for decades: it is a diverse and inclusive place where kids and parents of all backgrounds are welcomed. Parents are involved with the program volunteering to organize fun-day fundraisers and sharing their skills on the board that directs the program and in the classrooms with the children. I sent two kids here and was especially happy with the caring, dedicated teachers who are the consistent core to the program and the multiple outdoor play areas and activities the children enjoyed all year round.
Little Charlie's Academy is a wonderful daycare center. As an overprotective parent I don't trust just anyone with my children. I am very happy with this daycare and wouldn't have my children anywhere else. Very friendly and professional staff, great environment, and I love that it is very colorful. They always have creative , educational, fun events. My children always comes home happy and talking about their day at daycare. They have a great before and after care service. I recommend this daycare for anyone looking to enroll their child/children into daycare.
Absolutely LOVE this daycare. I have two kids one that will be 3 and another that will be 1 soon i cannot get my son to stop asking me to take him to daycare on the weekends he loves his teachers as well with my daughter. The teachers are very well educated and respectful as well with the director from this Bright side. I was a bit on the fence when i had read the previous comment below but once i step foot in there with my kids we got comfortable fast and my kids are learning a lot from this daycare. Highly recommend this daycare to anyone that is interested.
My experience with Grace Neighborhood Academy is wonderful. My daughter, Anearah Walker loves her school. She enjoys going to there and is always talking about how fun reading time is. Anearah comes home talking about her new friends, how to spell their names and do shapes and colors. She loves bringing home books from the school library every day. The staff here is friendly. Grace Neighborhood Academy has been a great experience and I recommend sending your children here. They have a lot to offer for the future.SincerelyMickaline Coleman
My daughter stated at something to grow on when she was 1, this was the best decision I've made with child care, I couldn't get her potty trained until I've meet up with, Teacher Gwen. Teacher Gwen and her staff have been so good my daughter she has learned a lot of things with this place . She was counting and learning how numbers when she started, now my daughter who is 5 now is able to read.I just wanted say thank you to all the staff at this place, this place I would recommend to anyone who is looking for child care.
My son is currently enrolled and I dont trust any other daycare service like i trust Special Tots...A safe enviornment is provided, and all of the students are pleasant and react very well towards one another. After the first week alone my son (2yrs old) was able to count from 1-30 and was singing his ABC's. Everyday I ask him how school was and he always replys "Good mommy"!! He even says "Good night, see you tomorrow", to all of the other children and his teacher....truly an amazing service!!
My son has been going there on and off since he was about 5 months old. They have always taken good care of him. The only con is that the age groups are not split up that much. I mean the little babies are split from the bigger kids but that is about it. The staff has always been polite and its affordable if you fall into the class of people like my family who makes to much for subsidies but are still very broke due to bills. I like the place and I love my son so that means something.
